It seems that you've accomplished this by including structure and 
constant definitions (and presumably protocol-marshalling routines) in 
the tgt source file itself, which seems to me to be the wrong way to do 
it, but it does free you from requiring headers or libraries, so
technically speaking, true.

I wouldn't write the plugin this way (copying code), but that's me.
